Temporary Total Disability in Indiana

Learn More when You Call Our Indianapolis Work Comp Lawyers

Temporary total disability is one of four types of disability payments offered through Indiana workers’ compensation. Temporary total disability, or TTD, is available to workers who have suffered a disability that renders them completely unable to work, but only for a certain period of time. Under TTD payments, it is assumed that the worker will make a partial or full recovery and be able to return to work eventually. In the event of a TTD, most employees are given a percentage of their normal wages through work comp payments.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a temporary total disability in a work accident, give the lawyers of Wagner Reese a call for more information about how we can assist you. Our legal team wants to help you get the money that is rightfully yours, no matter the type of injury you have sustained.

Mistakes and accidents happen, but that doesn’t mean you should have to pay for them. Call our Indianapolis work comp lawyers at (888) 204-8440 to schedule a free consultation.

How TTD Benefits Work in Indiana

In order to qualify for TTD benefits in the state of Indiana, you must show that your work-related injuries completely prevent you from working. However, you do not need to show that you will never be able to return to work or obtain any form of gainful employment; in fact, it is assumed you will eventually recover enough from your injuries so as to be able to return to work.

In Indiana, TTD benefits typically equate to two-thirds of your average weekly pay up to but not exceeding Indiana’s maximum benefit. If you are able to return to work after the accident but your injuries prevent you from earning the same wage/income as you did before, you will likely qualify for partial benefits through workers’ comp.

In most cases in Indiana, those who qualify receive TTD benefit until:

  • They return to work (whether or not it is the same job/position they had before)
  • Their doctor determines that continued medical treatment will not improve their condition
  • They have received benefits for a period of 500 weeks

TTD benefits will also conclude if the injured individual refuses to attend a medical exam ordered by his or her employer’s insurance company or if the injured individual does not accept a “suitable” employment offer.
